Coach Mark Moroz in Notre Dame Wall Of Fame
Christ School's Coach Mark Moroz returned to his alma mater, Notre Dame High School in Canada, last week to receive induction into the high school’s Wall of Fame.
This honor was a nice surprise for Mark Moroz, and an opportunity to visit his hometown. “During my time in High School, I would look up at the wall of fame but never imaged to see my name up there.”
Mark Moroz teaches in the Learning Resources and English departments. He also serves as head football coach and Head of Young House. Mark earned his Bachelor’s degree in Communication from Wake Forest University, where he played football. Following a professional football career, he coached at Wake Forest for two years, and then moved to Forsyth Country Day School where he taught English and music and served as head football coach and Assistant Athletic Director.
Head Coach Mark Moroz took over the Christ School Football program in 2011 and led the Greenies to a school record of 8 consecutive victories and an 8-1 record that season. In 2012, Coach Moroz improved on the previous season as the Greenies won all of their regular season games to go 10-0, including a 52-7 victory against Asheville School in the "The Game." Christ School went on to win two playoff games and advanced to the Championship Game.
In the last 2 seasons, the Greenies have retained the Trophy with wins over Asheville School. This year, 2014, was the third consecutive year that the Greenies had reached at least the semi-final round. a testament to the leadership of Coach Moroz. His football team's combined record over the past four years is 35-10.
Moroz said that the Wall of Fame honor was also “a great experience to return to my high school and be part of the ceremony.”
“I had wonderful coaches and role models during my time at Notre Dame High School. I am very fortunate to be part of the Christ School community where I am able to emulate my coaches as I help student-athletes achieve their goals.”
Congratulations, Coach Moroz!

The Fayssoux-Arbogast Trophy was created in 1971 and was named after Richard Fayssoux, football coach at Christ School from 1920 to 1966 and B.H. Arbogast, Asheville School coach from 1930-1967.
